“A Problem For Future Me” Poem

A Problem For Future Me

By Ashley O’Hare

I create list after list

of things I wish to accomplish,

but when the time comes to take action

my spirit is thoroughly demolished.

The questions return to plague my mind:
What will I do if things turn south?

What if my future self becomes unkind?

Will I have to embark on the next journey alone?

My brain has not known peace

since the turn of the century.

The doubts and dread have always been here

beside the harsh regrets and crippling fear.

So I will make another list

to have something to do

and I will leave the action for future me

because present me has no clue.
